First Snow

It snowed here a few days ago. I don’t like snow, but first snow is always exciting, it means winter is coming and if winter is coming so is Christmas.

I take snow for granted, I moved from Russia to Canada, and neither country has a shortage of flurries. I don’t find snow particularly exciting. The situation is quite different for some others, in particular, one of the foreign students on my floor. If you’ve lived your whole life in India, you’ve never seen snow before, and if all of a sudden you open your res door and someone hands you a snowball, you’re a little surprised.

I think the sight of a person walking out of their house and seeing snow for the first time was one of the most hilarious and amusing things that have happened here. This year I’ll enjoy snow more than ever.

    I love snow! It hardly snows in London (UK), so I always get excited when it snows. We had our first snow of the year, about a week before you guys, but not in London. I got it in Leicester where I’m living/attending uni.

    It was around 15 degrees all last week on my end. It was a bit depressing, so I made a leaf-man. That didn’t turn out so well.
